The Year in Music Mondays

For the last Monday of the year, I decided to try to come up with the best of Music Mondays. It was a hard choice but throughout the year, one of the artists I kept going back to was Robert Duncan. His work on Castle is simple amazing and I really wish ABC would release the soundtrack. Here's two of my favorites.

Robert Duncan, ABC's Castle



And my all time Castle favorite

Gotta Love Jezebel

You can learn terrific new terms on the Internet. Today I learned about vampire tea bags. Please note that, although it is a rather hilarious article, this Jezebel post on is titled F*** You, Menstruation and is neither kid nor work friendly. (But just about every woman from 11 to 80 can totally relate.)

Other interesting links, author Scott Lynch answers (bitslaps) critics about how unrealistic his female characters are written. I've added Mr. Lynch to my teetering TBR based on his responses alone. :) via DearAuthor.com

Which also led me to, PSA: Your Default Narrative Settings Are Not Apolitical. There are some terrific links in that post as well. 

Enjoy your weekend. :)

My ultimate OTP (One True Pair) is Selina Kyle/Bruce Wayne. The only writer
I've seen actually do this awesome anti-heroine justice is Chris Dee with her Cat-Tales
What struck me with this song is how well it would fit Selina when she's finally

Music Monday and News


Pink has always been one of my fav female singers
but I have to say I was totally impressed by how
awesome she is in this song.

News:

I must apologize for being so behind. In fact, with the craziness
of the holidays and NaNo and a new release, I feel like I'm still
planning for Halloween. That's how far behind I am. So, of course,
I totally missed the run of the Men and Women of the Military Hop
Giveaway. Just blew right by me, but better late than never. Right? ;)

Congrats to the winner, Beckey 
who gets Water of Life, Cold Hard Magic and Eve Langlais' Alien Mate.
And because I was so late, I figured the least I could do was
pick a second winner, Catherine, who gets a copy of Water of Life.
Again, my apologies for being soooo unfashionably late.

Men & Women of the Military Giveaway Hop

 Men & Women of the Military
 Giveaway Hop

Hosted by The Jeep Diva



Military hotness abound! I must confess that military heroes have always been a favorite for me. Courage, dedication, commitment and downright hotness (especially when they are less than perfect) always hit my right buttons. It was no surprise that my first hero was Master Chief Jackson Monroe, a career Navy man who's about to break all the rules for a much younger doctor if they can survive getting a helicopter crash, an alien invasion, and a sinister attempt of world domination.



Giveaway*: One winner gets an e-copy of Water of Life, e-copy of my short story Cold Hard Magic, & e-copy of Alien Mate by the awesome Eve Langlais (this item will be gifted via ARe and requires an account, subject to availability).
*Open international. If there's enough international comments, I'll give a second copy of Water of Life to an international entrant, so let me know if you're (INT).

To enter** just answer the following question in the comments (be sure to let me know what file format you prefer):
**Get an extra entries if you add Red's Wolf to your TBR list on Goodreads and if you follow me on twitter 



Who is your favorite military hero?

My answer? Hands down, Frederick Wentworth (Persuasion)
Though I have to confess that Ciarán Hinds probably
has a lot to do with the fact.  My dream recast?
Richard Armitage :)

NaNoWriMo

So, it's November and that means NaNo. I love NaNo which is why I've done it for several years now and to the pressure of birthdays and holidays and my posts will definitely become sparse. Before I go, however, I'll share a bit of what I've been doing and what I'm a planning. :)

Red's Wolf is now available. (Loooove the cover.) It's just a short story, around 22K.



Not sure if I'll be releasing anything else this year, but who knows. For NaNo, I'll be reworking my Lilith universe after I do some 'writing exercises' that a my friend, C.C. Denham has forced upon me. I'm totally doing these exercises against my will.  All that noise from the kicking and screaming? Yeah, it's me. :) I have made some posts with wonderful music, but other than that, unless I win the lotto ;) I'm not sure when I'll get back to a regular post schedule, so just in case...Happy Holidays!

Music Monday...


I Know You Care by Ellie Goulding


I'm a huge fan of playlists. Whenever I have an idea
for a new character/story/universe, I start putting together
a playlist. This song ended up being perfect for a couple
in a new universe that is slowly blossoming in my head.
Clearly, it will have my bread and butter, angsty couple
that shouldn't fall in love, but totally do :)

What I learned this week....


Just when you think you've matured and put those
puke in hair college days behind you, parenthood
comes and laughs at you. Nothing like having a sick,
pukey child who gets their 'love' all over you.


On other news:
I hate editing. Yeah, not something I just learned this
week. Ask any writer and if they say they enjoy editing
(their own work) they are LYING. But the good news
is that I've finally finished the first round of editing and
rewriting Red's Wolf (smutty take on Red Riding Hood).
Have a new bookcover and everything. Yippeee!

Music Monday...I'm Alive



Okay, bear with me. ;)
I was yanked out of the Matrix because my laptop died. Really, 
the red pill ain't all that it's cracked up to be and now I'm finally 
back in the blue world. To celebrate and because it's Monday,
I couldn't think of a more cracktastic experience than Xanadu.
I loved this movie as only a sheltered, eight year old child of the 
80's could. If you're over 21, don't watch this movie sober. It's not
nearly as fun. Music is ELO (Electric Light Orchestra).

Music Monday...

On Tuesday. 
This is what I get for not creating the post on Sunday like I had planned. :)


So pretty much everyone has heard of fanfiction, but what about
fan soundtracks? I know, pretty awesome. The thing is there's
so much talent out there that it's amazing. Sam Cushion is one 
of those talented, fans who have created awesomeauce music
based on awesomesauce (or so my 10yo keeps telling me) books.
Give Music of Panem a try (it's really good even if you haven't read 
the books.) If you like it, there are links to buy from iTunes or
Amazon in the YouTube vid.

Writer Vision vs. Reader Entitlement

“Don’t give people what they want, give them what they need.” Joss Whedon

Not too long ago, one of my favorite authors struck fear in the heart of her twitter followers when she joked that her urban fiction series might not have a happy ending for the main couple. As a reader, my kneejerk reaction was the inevitable, "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!" I would be heartbroken if Kate and Curran, errr, this couple doesn't have a happy ending. The author soon twitted that everyone should take a chill pill because she had already promised a HEA. Phew!

But it got me thinking. When does an author lose the right to write the story the way they see fit instead of the way the readers (or most of them) want it? When does reader entitlement override the writer vision?

It's not new that writers can become sick of their own creation and kill them off  *cough Sherlock cough* only to be forced (with sledgehammers) *cough Misery cough* to bring them back to life. Success and reader expectations can be seen as stifling for some authors. Nothing is more annoying than having readers love a character you hate  *cough Draco Malfoy cough* and want something that was never envisioned. 

The writer in me says, "Suck it, readers. That which I created, I can destroy." The reader in me says, "WTF are you smoking, writer?" (Full disclosure: I'm one of those bitter fans of the Anita Blake.) There has to be a happy medium, right? Writers create what they want without betraying the fans who love them? Right?

Fictional Fridays...

With a huge nod to the awesome ladies at Vaginal Fantasy (if you don't know them, go check them out), I thought I'd start a series of Fictional Fridays. First up,


The Fictional Five (movie/TV version)
Fictional characters that would definitely make my 'to-do' list :)


Loki (Tom Hiddleston), Thor, Avengers
Why? Tom Hiddleston, duh! :) Actually, I couldn't help but feel bad for Loki. Yes, he's petty and vindictive (with HUGE daddy issues) but in the end he just wanted to be validated. He's the boy in the school yard that just doesn't know how to show affection so he pulls the girl's pigtails.
HFN/HEA: Happy For Now. Loki is the bad boy you think fondly off for the good time you had together, but he's not the forever and ever type. He's the shag, not marry type. Marriage would never be an option anyway. :)

What I learned this week...

It really is...



Phrase of the week
Toboggan of Shame: as in, "...still probably like to slide down Ryan Lochte's abs on a toboggan of shame."


Believe it or Not
I wasn't a believer in the Mayan 2012 prophecy, but this Honey Boo Boo video kinda changed my mind...


Buzzfeed is my new favorite site
I just read the articles, really.  "Male Enhancing Body Garments" NSFW.


I also love Jezebel
Olympic fanfiction. (It's really RPF/RPS - Real Person Fiction/Real Person Slash). Don't ask me why I know that ;)

Hysteria, Piracy & Vodka

Why yes, Virginia, 2012 is the Year of Wankmageddon.

Last week a group of writers went all atwitter (hehe, sorry couldn't help myself) about a new and blatant piracy site, LendInk. Twits (ok, done now) multiplied like rabbits. Facebook (is FB still popular?) did whatever Facebook does (I know, I just don't FB). The war cry went out via writer's circles to: Bring. Down. LendInk. And lo and behold they succeeded. LendInk is down and might never return. 

Perhaps that should have been a clue, a spoiler, if you will, that something was not quite right. After all, piracy sites are like Hydra (either the classical mythological or Avengers versions apply here): cut off a head and two more sprout in its place.

Well, it turned out that LendInk was...wait for it...perfectly legal. Yup. It was in the FAQ. It was a legit lending site that was basically setting up customers together. Kinda like a book dating site for Kindle and Nook users. They were quite transparent about their business.

Oh, but wait, says the angry mob of hysteric authors, we did not give you permission to lend our books!

Well, yes, yes you did when you agreed to the Terms and Conditions of both Amazon and Barnes & Noble, there's this pesky section that you allow to have your book be lendable.

So the witch hunt brings down a perfectly legitimate site. Congratulations! You should all be very proud of making all of us (even those of us who were going, "WTF? Did you read the FAQ?") look like asshats.


Which brings me to real pirates and piracy and pirating. Errr, Matey. 

Dear Fellow Authors, 

You can't stop the signal. Don't bother. Go write. As Neil Gaiman points out

It's people lending books. And you can't look on that as a lost sale.... What you're actually doing is advertising. You're reaching more people. You're raising awareness.

 Jackie Barbosa wrote a terrific blog post but this really resonated:
...discoverability is the second reason I don’t particularly worry about piracy. NOT being discoverable is worse, I believe, than anything else...

Now, some might say, "What do you know? You're not being pirated."

Yes, yes I am. Me. The speck of dirt on an ant that I am in publishing. In the end pirates will either not read your book at all, read and become buyers, read and become superfans who will go out of their way to spread the word and generate more sales for you.

So, as the Year of Wankmageddon continues, all I have to say is....






PS. I finally finished my smutty take on Little Red Riding Hood and it will be available, well, soonish ;) I'll be having some whipped cream vodka as celebration ;)

A Hero's Blog Hop


From the Heartbreakers to the Dreammakers...What makes some heroes so memorable? Looks aren't everything, not by a longshot. In fact, looks are almost negligible when faced against charisma. Don't get me wrong, I love eye candy ;) but the heroes that are most memorable for me are those whose strength of character speaks volumes. 

My favorite type of hero is the tortured warrior who has been scarred either emotionally or physically but is still capable of love and devotion that simply takes your breath away. Which is why I simply love Jackson in Water of Life. He's the type that puts duty before self and when faced with the impossible, such as the love of an opinionated doctor with a backbone of steel, he faces it head on and a whole new world opens up for him. Some of my favorite tortured heroes include: BDB's Z  and Loretta Chase's, Dain from Lord of Scoundrels. Which brings me to my giveaway question:


What's your favorite hero type?
Boy next door, tortured hero, billionaire tycoon or someone completely different? 
 

Giveaway*: One winner gets an e-copy of Water of Life.
*Open international. If there's enough international comments, I'll give a second copy of Water of Life to an international entrant, so let me know if you're (INT).

To enter**: just answer the following question in the comments (be sure to let me know what file format you prefer)**Get an extra entries if you add Water of Life to your TBR list on Goodreads and if you follow me on twitter

The Year of Wankmageddon Cont.


The kerfuffle exploded recently on two fronts: 'outing' reviewers that are considered bullies (and I don't mean just naming them but putting out personal information about them) and bloggers charging for reviews (then threatening lawsuits).

There are terrific posts in a variety of places but I found this The Daily Dot article to be a smorgasbord of great links.

Team Oatmeal

repost via Dear Author

 The Oatmeal is a satiric cartoon site run by Matthew Inman. About a year ago, he noticed that his content was being uploaded without attribution to a site called “The FunnJunk.” The FunnyJunk is a site that contains user generated content. This means that account holders post things that they like from all over the internet. Maybe a pre-Pinterest sort of site. The Oatmeal writes to the FunnyJunk requesting that the information be removed.

FunnyJunk took down the comics but proceeded to create a mirror image of The Oatmeal’s website. The Oatmeal responded by asking his readers what to do.

The FunnyJunk responded with a call to action to its own users asking them to inundate The Oatmeal’s inbox and facebook page. The FJ’s users responded in droves using their arsenal of retorts such as gay slurs and incoherently misspelled sentences to insult The Oatmeal and his biological predecessors for having the gall to procreate and, I guess, learn how to spell and draw.

Reviews, Reactions and General WTFery.

Via Innocent English


Because kittens do make everything better...


First, the housekeeping. It's come to my attention that I might have to make something more transparent.

If I recommend/tweet/like a book, that means I've actually read it and...*looks around*...liked it. Yeah, I know, shocker.

Writers now are inundated with the need to market themselves, their books, make connections, blah blah blah. I get that. But if I mention a book here or on twitter, then I want to make it crystal clear that, not only I've read it and liked it, but that I'm not doing it because I want to be or am buddies with the author. That I want to get 'in' with the editor/publisher/agent. That I want them to follow me on back on twitter or anything.

I was a reader first and you know what? I'm still a reader who enjoys talking about books I liked.

Which brings me to this...over at Dear Author's Thursday Midday Links, there is a blurb about yet another author behaving badly. This time, The Cuddlebuggery Book Blog talks about a vanity author that decided to 'out' a reviewer by posting personal information about them. Now, nothing is ever really 'private' on the 'Net. But to post information this personal about one reviewer just because they didn't like one book is beyond ridiculous and downright scary.

This of course starts that thorny discussion about how and if authors should even respond to bad reviews. No author likes a bad review. Bad reviews equal butthurt. That's all there is to it. Butt hurt. We do get over it and if the review is clever with scathing remarks, we can eventually appreciate it. Eventually. :)

To respond aggressively is so... well, last January. Really. Just get over it and move on. So with that in mind, I found two blog posts that are absolutely awesome on how authors should respond to bad reviews. (Both links came to me via Jeannie Lin (@JeannieLin) so I didn't actually find them but, eh, you know what I mean.)

(As a sidenote: anyone who doesn't like bacon is suspect and anyone who doesn't like chocolate is just not from this planet.)

(Personally, I think she forgot about wine, but Shiloh Walker pointed that out right away ;) So, wine, chocolate and hot, sweaty, angry sex with Russell Crowe's Gladiator character [or insert your own favorite like Christian Bale's Batman, or...yeah, I'm back now] that works for me.)

What makes a hunky hero?
Looks? Charisma? Intelligence?
All of the above?
Or something else that can't be identified other than...
"I know it when I see it" ?






I have to admit, when writing, it definitely helps to give my characters an avatar. Not only does that help visualize them, but also helps in the overall characterization. Once of my favorite avatars is David Gandy. Pretty easy to see why. :) In fact, he's the hunky hero in my story loosely based on Red Riding Hood.
 (Hint: he's not the hunter LOL)







But are looks the definitive answer to what makes a hunky hero? Absolutely not! Hunky heroes can come in all shape(shifters?) and sizes. Share some of your favorite hunky heroes.
